New focused support for the most ambitious UK businesses

With limited dedicated support for Scale Up local businesses across the UK, High Growth and Nottingham University Business School have teamed up to bring a unique support programme for the most ambitious businesses. 

Launched by the founder of High Growth, Stuart Ross, and Professor David Park of Nottingham University Business School, the Ultimate Scale Up programme aims to help businesses in the region fulfil their potential.

Stuart explained: “There’s a huge potential for UK businesses that unfortunately isn’t being nurtured. According to The Economist (21 June 2022), Britain remains a good place to start a business but a bad one to scale it. That is why it was so important for us to bring a world class Scale Up programme using expertise, experience and connections to offer growing businesses through 2023 a real chance to move to the next level in a way that’s sustainable and crucially, profitable.”

The launch of the Ultimate Scale Up programme is initially open to just 12 business leaders with the potential to quickly reach the next level of growth. Each attendee will attend an intensive residential as well as receiving accredited coaching, online and peer to peer support across a three-month period.

The programme brings in the latest thinking and examples from Scale Up experts and practitioners from across the world, sharing game changing strategies that facilitate rapid growth in businesses with ambition.

We are incredibly excited to launch the Ultimate Scale Up Programme in partnership with High Growth that will actively support business leaders at ambitious mid-market companies in the UK. This innovative new partnership supports our ongoing aim to deliver the very best business education and coaching support across the region and beyond.” said Professor David Park, Director of Executive Education at Nottingham University Business School

Professor Park  also added: “We are dedicated to being a key part of the support structure to help fuel growth and the creation of new jobs in high growth organisations in our region and beyond.”

With places limited, companies are being encouraged to sign up as soon as possible by visiting the Ultimate Scale Up Programme webpage.
